The fact that Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner was benched for the second quarter of Sunday's game spoke to both the concern about his tendency to being beaten on the outside as well as the coach's belief in the talent behind Browner on the roster.
Whether Browner remains the starter will depend on whether he continues to get beaten down the sideline. It happened against Indianapolis when Andrew Luck threw that 29-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton in the second quarter of Week 5. It happened again on Tennessee's second possession when Kendall Wright caught a 32-yard pass, and it nearly happened again later in the opening quarter when Ryan Fitzpatrick overthrew receiver Damian Williams, who had gotten behind Browner.
It was after that incompletion that Browner came out of the game, replaced by Walter Thurmond.
Back in '82, I used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter mile.
How much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains?... Yeah... Coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we would've been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind.
